We complete the season with a tour of the Lakes and Yorkshire Dales.
We end our tour season with the traditional long weekend at our favourite 3 star hotel on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, not only is this hotel a great base for touring, but its ambience, food and accommodation has made it a firm favourite with customers and us alike.
The tour has been moved back to start on a Thursday and end on a Sunday to avoid the usual Friday afternoon and Monday morning traffic congestion.
The 3 night tour will give you the opportunity to unpack, relax and allow us to show you the best scenery and biking roads that the Dales, Lakes and Northern Pennines can offer. If you have never toured this area before, you cannot fail to be impressed with not only the natural beauty, but some great traffic free biking roads. Having run tours in this area since 1996, we know every nook and cranny and are constantly changing our routes, so even if you have been with us before, we feel sure you will enjoy something new.
This tour is fully guided and will appeal to all riders but is an ideal opportunity for those who perhaps have not toured before to give it a try before tackling something a little longer or even joining us abroad.
This is a social event as much as anything so if you want to come in your car, or ride indepently, you are more than welcome, your guide will be able to advise you on great routes and attractions.
